Hey folks,

I ordered a KM-008 from Pureforged.co.uk and can't seem to find hosel dimensions.

Will the YSC fit?
Has anyone dealt with Pure Forged before?  What is the standard putter shaft that they use?

Thanks!

Any .355 tapered shaft that suits you. I like using Rifle wedge shafts.....the choices are pretty much endless.

Thanks for the note. Just to confirm - this is 100% NOT a flare tip? Thanks again.

0.355 tip shafts will work.
I find Rifle (step-less) shafts work great.
In my opinion,he heavier the weight, the better. (>120 grams for up to 35-ich length.)

Aeroburner TP 14° Matrix 70 Proto Stiff

Putter came last week, and thus far it's pretty interesting.  Being my first heel shafted putter, I wasn't sure what to expect.  I haven't taken it out yet, but have rolled a ton of putts on my carpet and my Big Moss.

For reference, my current gamer rotates between a 350g Byron GSS DH-89 and a Newport 2 Oval Track Oil Can.  Both have what I believe is the TT YSC shaft, and both have a really nice pop to them.

I love the way the 008 frames the ball.  It's extremely compact and has the same visual appeal of the Baby Blades.  For me, less is more as with longer blade length clubs, mentally I want to swing harder because of some deep rooted feeling that larger = more mass = need to swing harder.  To that end, the smaller head helps me focus and just looks nice over the ball.

From a feel perspective, it feels slightly firmer and less poppy than a perfectly struck DH89 and oval track, but equally as satisfying.  I'm kinda thinking the pop is actually a function of the YSC shaft more than the head, but it's tough to tell.  I managed to find a couple YHSF / YSC shafts which I'lm probably going to give a shot as the current shaft's step pattern is quite a bit different.

I'll likely take it out for it's first round tomorrow.  Will report back.
